A new round of grant programs to help small and medium-sized businesses in Ohio has been announced.

The funding will help industries that experienced losses over the last year due to the pandemic.

“The programs will provide $155 million in grant funding to businesses that opened in 2020, food and beverage establishments, entertainment venues, and lodging venues. The funds were made available by the Ohio General Assembly as part of Senate Bill 108 and Senate Bill 109, both of which Governor DeWine signed into law in May,” according to a news release from Governor Mike DeWine.

The four types of grants are the Food and Beverage Establishment Grant, the Entertainment Venue Grant, the Lodging Grant, and the New Small Business Grant.

Applications will open on June 29. To review guidelines and requirements, visit BusinessHelp.Ohio.Gov
